Feng Shui Colors for uplifting your Chi can be applied by focusing on placement of The
Bagua Map Colors throughout the overall structure or on a room-by-room basis.
 Overall Structure: Place The Bagua Map over a sketch of your floor plan of the
entire house or office. Then, if you are focused on increasing Wealth - located in
the upper left-hand corner of The Bagua Map, consider placing Purple, Green or
Red objects in that area of your home
If appropriate, consider painting the entire room a shade of corresponding The
Bagua Map color. We painted our home office a beautiful subdued shade of
lavender, as it was located in The Wealth Area of our Florida condo’s Bagua Map.
Prosperity flourished for us in that environment
 Within a specific Room: Place The Bagua Map over the sketch of your room’s
floorplan, and then match The Bagua Map color to the Life Area that you want to
improve. Again, using The Wealth Gua to focus on creating Prosperity, by
placing purple, green, red or even blue objects -such as a vase, painting,
sculpture, drapes, lighting - In the corresponding upper left-hand area of your
Colorful Chinese Red Envelopes
for Wishes & Intentions

Wishes and resolutions are always made throughout the year. Write and place your
intentions in a Red Envelope to seal their completion.
Feng Shui Colors by Room

Another way to choose Feng Shui colors for your home or office is by looking at the
functionality of specific rooms.

Feng Shui Bedroom Colors
Master Bedroom: As Pink is the Feng Shui color of Love, it is a great choice for
sparking or keeping the Romantic fire glowing in your relationship. If the Master
Bedroom happens to be in your home’s Marriage & Relationship Gua, you will have a
double winner by painting the walls a Pink or Rose color - or if Pink walls are too much
for you, place Pink objects around the room to stimulate your partnership.
I do not recommend blues or greens in the Master Bedroom, as they are “cool” colors
that might dampen a relationship. Green is a good accent color, as it represents The
Wood Element, and Wood feeds Fire (Pink with Red tones).
Peach is not recommended for for The Master Bedroom, as it can invite infidelity.
Children’s Rooms: Blues and Greens can be used to support children in their growth
while light or pastel colors stimulate Creativity. If the child’s bedroom happens to be
in The Children & Creativity Gua, then I would recommend using light pastels in
either pink, blue, green or yellow.
Living Areas – The Public Spaces
Living or Family Rooms: Shades of Yellows and Browns work well in these
rooms.We were able to use two shades of yellow together successfully in our open living
room/kitchen area – a light yellow and a corresponding shade of gold – to simulate a
cheery, uplifting feeling in our daily living spaces. Many people might prefer tan, beige or
earth tones to nuture the inhabitants.
The Dining Room: Reds (pinks, not bright reds) stimulate appetite in a dining area,
while use of blues and greens stimulate conversation and bring life to the setting.
The Kitchen: While White is a recommended color for the Kitchen, as it represents
cleanliness and a wholesome atmosphere, we like the use of cheerful colors, particularly
the yellow shades.
